Who we follow
We follow accounts related to law and society, including legal institutions, third level law schools and departments, public bodies, law commissions in other countries, relevant European Institutions and accounts of particular relevance to the study, practice and reform of law in Ireland, Europe and internationally.

If you follow us on Twitter, we will not automatically follow you back.

Replies and Direct Messages
The primary purpose of the Commission’s Twitter account will be to share information. The account will not be monitored on a full-time basis and will generally not be used to respond to detailed queries. If you would like to make a submission in relation to a consultation or any aspect of our work please do so by email, phone or post using the details on our website.

Likes, Retweets and Follows
The liking or retweeting of posts by the Commission’s account is not indicative of endorsement.

Equally, following an account does not equate to endorsement of that account, or endorsement of the work or views of the user of the account.

Abusive or spam tweets
Abusive or spam tweets will result in accounts being blocked and users being reported to Twitter.

The Commission’s Twitter account will generally only be monitored during business hours. We endeavour to regularly update the account. However, there may occasionally be periods when our account is not monitored.
